SAGE NATION launches AW23 campaign with a focus on British Fabrics

To mark the release of SAGE NATION’s Fall Winter 23 collection, the brand took to the streets for its latest campaign. Shot by Sirui Ma and featuring HIMI AND Serena Motola, the campaign imagery follows on from the lookbooks, utilising an intimate, soft-focus style to explore the core pillars of the collection: balance, perspective and purpose. The offering largely consists of industrial and earthy tones, exploring the Japanese concept of the ‘Power of Five’, where limitation allows the brand to contrast its neutral tones. British fabrics are key to the latest offering, consisting of wool and recycled nylons, which all nod to the traditions of the British textile industry.
